5:17 am
the device is already used in europe and canada to treat depression and epilepsy. the lead researcher from ucla says within a week parents noticed an improvement in their childrens attention, overactivity and impulse control, all without medication. their sleep pattern also improved dramatically. >> based on the parent report, about 80% of kids were deemed improved by the end of the study. >> reporter: a month after the treatment ended, parents said the symptoms came back. the next step would be for a larger study to be done. if eventually approved by the fda, the device could be on the market in a few years. in the newsroom, lyanne melendez, abc 7 news. the santa clara board of supervisors may require new homes to be wired for electric car chargers. northern california ranks first in ownership but fourth in the number of charging stations. the board is drafting an

5:42 am
>> reporter: we don't know yet what the real world durability of this weapon s as the psychological and political shot across the bow of gun control advocates, it could have a lasting impact. >> reporter: producing an object like this starts with a 3-d model. then the printer reproduce the model laying down material n this case plastic. primarily it's used to make a prototype or approve a concept, not to be durable. the concern is that people who shouldn't have guns, felons and terrorists, will be able to print guns secretly in their homes. in reality, at this point, it would be easier to steal them. that's but machines that can turn them out reliably cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. and the starter models you buy over the internet are not ready yet. >> you're talking about, you know, a fiat compared to a ferrari. just radically different things. >> reporter: this san francisco software engineer has one of those fiats.
5:43 am
he spent $700 online to acquire this 3-d printer, spent hours putting it together. hardware and software limitations make printing a gun with this gear unlikely. still, advances in technology will eventually make it possible. >> i think it's necessary. we need people to challenge these positions, the earlier we do that, the better the industry will progress. >> the technology itself is neither good nor evil. it all depends on what you want to use it for. >> reporter: the debate is liable to get more intense as 3-d printing evolves. advanced printers can use metal, composite or biological material. if and when somebody decides to use those to make a weapon, government regulation may not be far behind. eric thomas, abc 7 news. 5:43 now. lisa argen keeping track of your forecast. sounds like a weird one out there. >> it is a weird one. i totally agree. we are looking at a pretty nice shot this morning from
